For API consistency we probably should use the same technique for
get/set proprieties like we do in other parts of the API, for some
reason when you mentioned more C++ like I went with a separate get/set
functions.  I've mentioned before that I don't like returning structures
by value because there is a potential link issues if the library and
client code compiled with different options:

We are going to lose compile time enforcement regardless if we want
generic get/set functionality.
